107th Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters - April 13 - 21, 2013
It was in the lounges of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort that the Tournament Director, Zeljko Franulovic, outlined the upcoming Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, organized by the SMETT (Société Monégasque pour l'Exploitation du Tournoi de Tennis), taking place from 13th to 21st April 2013.
Last year, for the 8th consecutive year, the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, dominated his opponents to win the same tournament for the eighth time in a row. "We are very proud to have contributed in this exceptional feat", declared the Tournament Director.
He added, "We can already announce the participation of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and are confidently awaiting the 18th March, the dateline for entries, to confirm the final player list".
